CCA Heartland Regional Oversight Team

Region Leader: Pastor Jim Stewart

Calvary Chapel Kansas City


Pastor Jim Stewart

I am thankful for your interest in Calvary Chapel ministries and look forward to our interaction and developing a relationship with you.

After completing pastor’s school under Raul Ries, the Lord impressed on my heart to plant a Calvary Chapel in an area lacking that style ministry. So, my family and I moved to Southwest Missouri in 1989 from Southern California. Although I have been involved in helping establish several Calvary’s here, I have been pastoring Calvary Chapel Kansas City since 2001.

During the late 1800’s my great grandfather was an itinerant preacher right here in the heartland. He rode by horseback from town to town bringing the Good News of Jesus, blessing the believers along the way. I want to continue what my great grandfather began those many years ago and am blessed to have this opportunity to serve you. Myself, and the other team members listed below, are here to help further the Gospel and be a part of Kingdom building together.

If there is anything we can do to assist you in this process, please feel free to contact us. We are thankful for your heart for this part of the country and we know that God has a purpose and plan for your ministry.
